Fleet Composite || South African Airways

Well here we are again, a moment I didn’t think would happen so soon. Even South African Airways has yet to officially cease their operations (April 17), I feel that this needed to be done. I had a gut feeling when I woke up this morning and thought; “hey remember that KLM composite image I made? One that would stand out would be South African, their planes have such a beautiful livery”. So I made it this morning, a few moments ago I saw the post by @IFLY and thought “boy ain’t that a coincidence.”

So to show my respect for SAA, I created a simple composite image of their modern fleet for you all. This edit took over an hour to make and I used 4 applications to accomplish it; Adobe Lightroom, Snapseed, PicsArt and Procreate. I hope you enjoy this photo, stay tuned for more!

You’re in our hearts SAA, hang in there.

Each aircraft that bares the modern South African Airways livery (A333/A346/738/DH8/CR7) was individually photographed departing Johannesburg’s O R Tambo International Airport. Each photo was edited in to a single wide angle photo then the real editing began (which I can’t speak about just yet). Each flight took place on solo mode and the photos were captured utilizing the Neistat Drone Camera.

That is so beautiful!!!

South African could still be around for a little longer, if not, it could be started with a small international route, owned by bigger airliners. Great shots though.

Now that’s an awesome looking photo there, do you mind if I do one of these types of photos? Inspired by yours, of course.
